TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida lawmakers have wrapped up work on legislation aimed at outlawing the sale of marijuana pipes known as "bongs."
    
The Senate passed the bill (HB 49) on a 31-2 vote Friday. The measure now goes to Gov. Rick Scott for his consideration.
    
State law currently allows certain retailers to sell the pipes. Any sale of marijuana pipes would be a first-degree misdemeanor if the bill becomes law. Second and subsequent violations would jump to a third-degree felony.
    
Supporters say the bill sends a message against illegal drug use by making the pipes inaccessible at stores that often are close to schools.
    
Sen. Jeff Clemens, D-Lake Worth, voted against the bill. He argued that marijuana isn't a dangerous drug and should be allowed under strict regulation.
